18z didn't look bad for west and western middle parts of tn on up into kentucky. Still a few days out but the system is still there. Nobody is expecting a big dog but if snow is flying in early November it's a win. ::popcorn:: ::snowman::

Bridges up this way are already snow covered, so tell my overly nervous friend driving the rental car that it doesnít count.  ::rofl::

The well-below normal temperatures next week are transient. We will return to near average temperatures after the following weekend.

The next few mornings may be a good opportunity to see some "frost flowers" in vegetation low to the ground. That's where still actively growing/green ground plants rupture in freezing conditions, and the fluid from the stems bust out and freeze, making some nice little ice formations on the ground. You'll see the effect best in unmowed areas.

Speaking of frost flowers - has anyone ever seen this effect on a morning when you get a frost? Snapped the picture as I pulled out of my driveway a few weeks ago when we had a couple frosty mornings. First Iíve ever seen it happen and have no idea what would cause it.

Over half of Tennessee endured their first night below 32.  Middle/West Tennessee dipped into the upper 20's to near 30.  Lingering clouds kept parts of eastern TN above freezing with most areas around 32 to 34.  Just touched 32 here as the sun begins to rise.

I drove past a bermuda lawn the other day (that was well trimmed and maintained like a golf course), and there was a ripple pattern in how the grass was dying off. Previous frosts had started the process of the turf going into dormancy. But, the wave pattern of alternating green and yellowed grass caught my eye. Your picture reminds me slightly of that look. It almost looks like something is woven underneath the turf causing some sort of effect. But, Iím not sure.

Bermuda grass in notorious for this. I think this is caused by moisture content in the grass.

This is classic frost injury for Bermuda Grass. Its called Tiger Stripping and can be more common in some lawns then others. It has to do with the root zone depth if I remember correctly and how air moisture moves in the soil.

Itís probably not necessary based on recent model trends. Pretty much all of them keep the snow just west of us. Far west Tn may see a brief period. But, unless thereís a SE trend, all middle and east tn will see is maybe backside flurries.

At face value the GFS will have at least a few flakes flying twice at Chattanooga in the next week. Once Tuesday night, then again next weekend. Obviously no accumulation from either day, but Iím just happy to see flurries this time of year.  Gonna be an interesting week with potential flooding Monday, then way below normal temps.
Winter 2009-10 Snowfall: 11.5 in. :)
Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)
Winter 2011-12: Trace
Winter 2012-2013: 0.25 in.
Winter 2013-14: 10.6 (9.5 on 2/12)
Winter 2014-2015:
2/18 - 0.25" snow
2/20 - 1.5" snow, 0.15" ZR
2/24 - 0.5" snow
2/25 - 8" snow :)

Got down to upper 20ís last night but had a decent wind preventing frost. Tonight and a couple nights next week should do the trick.

As far as snow in these parts... the Gfs is most bullish on a few flakes with most meager accumulation in the Ozarks and SEMO. Cmc looks weird and the euro just says nope to anyone.
